Never again is now. We must wait for the evidence and then act or never be forgiven.

affiliate program In the aftermath of World War I, in which horrific chemical weapons attacks caused many deaths and much suffering, the world said it was enough. The weapons were banned from use in warfare. Saddam Hussein of Iraq used them to devastating effect against his Kurdish rebellion. Though it took nearly 18 years, he […]

Skin in the game: Advice for the US Administration

affiliate program My family lives in the Etzion region of Israel. I get up at 4:20 am in Seattle to go running and I often listen to Radio Israel on my smart phone. This morning during my run I heard the phrase that indicates a rocket attack is in progress. My hometown which my wife does […]

How Hamas helped with my household chores.

This is tongue and cheek and humorous. It is not meant to make light of the current situation in Gaza. It is not meant to make light of the heinous crime of Hamas shooting at civilians and killing a 25 year old mother of 3 who was 7 months pregnant. click for details . That […]

Reason 4 to re-elect the president: We don’t know which Romney we will get.

The pundits talk about the two Romney’s, the one that belched fire during the Republican primaries or the calm and reasonable guy that showed up to the debates.  The lack of definition in many areas of policy makes it difficult to discern whom we would be voting for. This covers many areas, including but not […]

Reason 3 to re-elect Obama: A realistic plan for the nations finances.

The Romney campaign has adopted a line of attack that involves telling big lies, repeating them early and often. They are clearly betting on […]

Why Condi is the right VP choice for Romney

The voters know by wide margin who is at fault for the current recession. Try as he might Romney will be hard pressed to change this perception. He has to run on the economy, I don’t think that will work, but he can strengthen himself in other areas. One is foreign policy heft. Rice brings […]

Obamacare:The decision that should not have been made. Supreme Court violates Federal Law.

The supreme court proved it is a political court again with today’s decision.  No majority was reached on the commerce clause issue. Therefore no decision should have been made. The court debated this. In the instance of a tax, you can not go to court about the tax until you pay it. This is Federal […]

The supreme court needs a citizen judge.

In 1921, President Warren Harding appointed former President William Howard Taft Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. He served until shortly before his death in 1930.
